Lavern "Tiny" Burgess Little, 86 years old went to be with the Lord Monday March 24, 2014 where she resided in Arbor Lake Nursing Home.
Tiny was born with a twin brother (Lavon) making them the eighth and ninth children to the Late James Linton and Eula Adalaide Burgess on August 5, 1927. She married the late John Calvin Little of Huttig, Arkansas in 1946. They lived in Huttig, Arkansas and later Marion, Louisiana where they raised their eight children.
Tiny was a devoted member of Litroe Baptist Church. She enjoyed sharing with people about three trips she made to the "Holy Land". She became a beautician when she was seventeen years old and had a beauty shop in our home for many years. Her favorite pastime included; "going fishing" anytime, with anyone, anywhere. She loved to bake and there was rarely a day without a home made sweet at our house. She embraced her children and grandchildren with so much love. In her later years she enjoyed going to the beach every summer with her children and grandchildren. Words cannot describe the love she has shown her family. We have been blessed with a lifetime of memories that we will cherish forever.
